George Mason Basketball Coach Heads To Miami

George Mason's Athletics director, Tom O'Connor, has confirmed that Larranaga is headed south to Miami.

He also says the Patriots will move "as quickly as possible" in their search for a new coach.

Larranaga spent 14 seasons at George Mason, where he became the school and the Colonial Athletic Association's all-time wins leader.

He led the Patriots to five NCAA tournament appearances, including a run to the Final Four in 2006.

Last season, Larranaga led George Mason to the Colonial regular-season title and an at-large berth in the Big Dance.

O'Connor says ultimately George Mason couldn't financially compete with what Miami was offering Larranaga.
